Repairing procedure

Step 1: Safety Precautions
  • Before starting, ensure the stove is completely turned off and disconnected from the power source to prevent any electrical hazards.
  • Allow the stove to cool down if it has been recently used to avoid burns.
  Step 2: Gather Necessary Tools
  • You’ll typically need a screwdriver set (usually Phillips-head), work gloves, and possibly a flashlight for better visibility.
  Step 3: Accessing the Spark Module
  • Locate the spark module in your stove. It’s usually located behind the control panel or beneath the cooktop surface.
  • Depending on the model, you may need to remove the control panel or the cooktop to access the spark module. Refer to the stove’s manual for specific instructions on accessing internal components.
  Step 4: Disconnect Power
  • For added safety, locate the circuit breaker that controls power to the stove and turn it off. Alternatively, you can unplug the stove from the power outlet.
  Step 5: Remove Control Panel or Cooktop (if necessary)
  • If the spark module is located behind the control panel, use the appropriate screwdriver to carefully remove the screws securing the panel in place.
  • Once the screws are removed, gently lift and set aside the control panel, being mindful of any wires attached.
  • If the spark module is beneath the cooktop surface, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for safely removing the cooktop. This usually involves lifting the cooktop or removing burner grates and burner caps to access the module.
  Step 6: Replace Spark Module
  • Once the spark module is accessible, locate and carefully disconnect the wiring harnesses connected to it. Take note of their positions for reassembly.
  • Using the appropriate screwdriver, remove the mounting screws securing the spark module in place.
  • Gently pull out the old spark module from its position.
  • Align the new spark module in the same position as the old one and secure it with the mounting screws.
  • Reconnect the wiring harnesses to the corresponding terminals on the new spark module.
  Step 7: Reassemble Control Panel or Cooktop
  • If you removed the control panel, carefully position it back in place and secure it with the screws removed earlier.
  • If you removed the cooktop, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for safely reattaching it.
  Step 8: Reconnect Power
  • Restore power to the stove by either plugging it back in or turning on the circuit breaker.
  Step 9: Test
  • Test the stove by turning on the burners to ensure the new spark module is functioning properly.
  • Monitor the stove during initial use to ensure there are no unusual sounds or behaviors.
  By following these steps carefully, you should be able to safely replace the spark module in your Viking FFID2426TS4A stove. If you encounter any difficulties or uncertainties during the process, it’s advisable to consult the stove’s manual or seek assistance from a professional technician.
